Ladies, let’s talk about sex. Or more to the point, lack thereof.
Decreased female libido may be less stigmatized by society than male, but it is nevertheless a source of unpleasant emotions for the women who experience it -and almost all of us women have, do, or will.
From confusion to frustration to embarrassment to feeling emotionally isolated, decreased sexual appetite for women is often a source of concern.
Why We Aren’t Always ‘On’
There are a few reasons behind decreased female libido, but the two most common reasons boil down to these root causes:
Simply put, we’re tired of caring and carrying so much. It is well-documented that the mental and emotional load of most relationships fall on women. Even when women aren’t in romantic relationships and/or don’t have children, they often carry the weight of familial relationships with parents and siblings.
This load can be exhausting to carry, so, at the end of the day when a partner wants to get frisky between the sheets, many women just feel too emotionally drained to bother. And while sex may not be an emotional affair all the time, for women especially, it is a lot of the time.
Hormones, Hormones, Hormones
Women go through SEVEN hormonal changes in their lives, from puberty all the way up to post-menopause. Men experience hormonal changes too, but not as many. One thing both sexes have in common is as they get older, both male and female libido decreases.
From a biological standpoint, it makes sense: we don’t need or want to procreate as much as we get older. Presumably (to our biology), we’ve sewn our oats and had our offspring.
Of course, this is not the case with everyone, but the fact remains that a decreased female libido is simply part of getting older.
But here’s a pivotal distinction: there’s having a decreased female libido and then there’s having NO sex drive whatsoever.
Sex is a Healthy Way to Live A Longer and Happier Life
Both men and women who have more sex live longer. That’s a scientific fact. Sex has been shown to strengthen the immune system, reduce stress and blood pressure, and may even reduce the risk of heart disease.
So, obviously, there are some benefits to getting busy, but again, we’re not always in the mood. And that’s not always our fault, but, if we have a ready and willing partner who we care for and would like to reap the rewards of intimacy, then it is on us if we don’t do anything about it.
Here are 3 simple ways to increase a decreased female libido quickly, easily and naturally.
- Perfect Organic Cordyceps. Cordyceps, a mushroom-like fungus that is sustainably harvested from the Himalayan Mountains, is a traditional Chinese medicine that is still used today to boost libido and treat sexual dysfunction by promoting better blood flow throughout the body.
When ingested in our Perfect Organic Cordyceps capsule form, you can simply take 1-2 supplements a day with meals, and within the course of a few days, should noticeably begin to feel the invigorating, performance-enhancing effects of this “magic” mushroom.
- Be Prepared. Hands up if you’ve ever crawled into bed beside your partner and thought about sex, then almost just as quickly fell asleep. It happens all too often.
As unromantic as it sounds, you may have to schedule in sexy-fun nights a few days or even a week in advance--at least at first. Life can get busy, but if you know you have these evenings of intimacy planned, then you can prepare for them.
If you have kids, get them to a parent’s or friend's house for the night. Get a good night’s sleep the evening before so you’re not out cold on the couch by 6 p.m. Exercise, take a lingering bath, put on your sex-kitten underwear: do what you gotta do to turn that smouldering fire into a raging inferno.
- Lots of Lead-Up. Plan for extended foreplay. Dinner, maybe a candle-lit bath together, a massage—whatever you think will get you in the mood. If you’ve been out of the game for a while, you’re probably going to have to warm-up before you jump back in.
Decreased female libido happens, but if it is bothering you or causing a problem in your relationship. Try these strategies, and importantly, talk to your partner! There’s nothing to lose from opening up, and so much to love about getting some lovin’.💋
